“Florence Foster Jenkins” is a BBC/Pathé Pictures release starring Meryl Streep as the 20th century heiress and performer who only thought she could sing. Her mostly true story is both funny and sad, but beautifully presented in this film. Lavish costumes and sets reflect the Victorian era in which Florence grew up—she was born in 1868—as a counterpoint to 1944, the year the story takes place.
By 1944 Florence Foster Jenkins was 76 and had been a New York socialite all her adult life.
